I am helping with one course in the Golden Gate Seminary Ministry in the City track in the Doctorate of Ministry program.
From the Golden Gate DMin website:
“Ministry in the City has a different flavor from ministry in Small Town America or the ‘burbs. The neighborhoods are more diverse and transitional in nature, the people do not share a common worldview, and the city has more than its share of societal problems—sex trafficking, drugs, homelessness, crime.
Have you ever wondered:
• How to make disciples of moving targets?
• How to bring stability to an organization whose leadership is constantly churning?
• Can you lead a church to be missional without burning out its leaders?
• What is the balance between truth and grace when proclaiming in the public arena?
• What does it take to revitalize an aging church?
• Is there a sensible church planting strategy for the urban world?
Those questions are the driving force behind our new DMin Track for those who Minister in the city. We’ve put together a team of experienced practitioners to join our faculty to help you equip you for ministry in the city, including:
• Dr. Paul Borden, served as Executive Minister of Growing Healthy Churches, San Ramon, CA, serving more than 215 churches in Northern California and Northern Nevada.
• Dr. Eric Bryant, serves with Gateway Church in Austin as the team leader for the Central Austin region, the South Austin campus, and as part of the teaching team.
• Dr. Ralph Neighbour, III, founded Inland Community Church in Chino, CA in 1984 and joined the Staff at Mosaic a few years ago, where he now serves and an elder and navigator.
Would you take a couple of minutes to visit our website www.ggbts.edu/dmin and pray about if the timing is right for you to get your DMin?”
